Alteration Room Design

Every space is different. Every room has its unique reason for existing.

     We might produce a thousand ideas before arriving at the perfect one for a project or client. It's a necessary part of the creative architectural process and one that we take seriously. Here's how we do it:

  • Goals  - To provide retailers with setup, maintenance, staffing , production guidelines, time evaluations, equipment need, follow up.
  • Set up - Meet general contractor at site, review space allocated, discuss equipment recommendations based on space and volume projections.  Once equipment needs are established we have the vendors available to provide the equipment, install, and maintain as needed.  These vendors have worked with many retailers over the past 20 years including Brooks Brothers, Barney’s, Bloomingdales,  Joseph Bank, Macy’s, Niemen's, and Saks.  All while providing timely and professional service.
  • Staffing – we have the expertise to provide labor requirements based on projected sales and unit volume for the location.
  • Productivity Guidelines -  Based on our years of experience working with New Century Information Services we have established productivity guidelines based on time needed per job compared against hours worked to evaluate production and can provide access ands set up of this technology for the location.
  • Supply Needs – work with vendors who can supply sewing supplies  and  have established an opening kit for supplies which can be replenished as needed and orders can be placed online or by phone, so coupled with our other vendor relationships we can provide a seamless process from set up to fully functioning tailor shop.
  • Follow Up –we can provide on site follow up visits for quality control, efficiency and equipment needs.
